SafeCT scans now the norm at KVH Hospital
In January 2014, KVH Hospital became one of the first in the region to adopt SafeCT technology, an improvement made possible by donations to The Foundation at KVH.
SafeCT reduces the amount of radiation a patient is exposed to during a CT exam by 50 to 80 percent. “We are very conscious of the importance of protecting our patients from unnecessary radiation,” said Sharon Davis, Director of Imaging.
Now, thanks to the generosity of our donors, KVH Hospital is able to provide the best CT image with the lowest radiation dose.
Fund-a-Need 2012 – Increasing Safety for our Smallest Patients
The Kittitas County community demonstrated its commitment to supporting our smallest and most vulnerable patients at the ninth annual Magical Evening gala, held on April 14, 2012.
The response was overwhelming – a total of $54,950 was pledged to support a new state-of-the-art security and monitoring system for our Family Birthing Place.
Because of the communities generous donations, KVH has now implemented the enhanced safety technology for our tiniest patients. Easy-to-use soft bracelets, tags and software work seamlessly, enabling KVH nurses to spend more time focusing on what matters most – caring for new mothers and their babies.
